Languages        

Within the St. Patrick's school community we are lucky to have a wide variety of different home languages.  In Key Stage 2 children have the opportunity to learn French and also to take part in key events throughout the year, such as International Week.

"Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. ..Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries."
